RingCentral Executive Roundtable

RingCentral was honored to host our top 12 partners at the RingCentral Executive Roundtable, where we gathered to celebrate their efforts and our successes so far. This event gave us the opportunity to discuss what is happening in the marketplace, share company updates, and honor our top two 2015 Master Agents of the Year based upon revenue production for the entire year: Ingram Micro and Sandler Partners.

It is a great time to be a RingCentral partner, and we feel extremely fortunate to have all of our partners as members of the RingCentral family.
